Welcome From Dr. David Manderscheid
Executive Dean and Vice Provost of Arts and Sciences

Whether you are new or returning, we are delighted to welcome you to the College of Arts and Sciences!  With over 80 majors and 100 minors, our college offers you unlimited opportunities.  From African American and African Studies to Zoology we invite you to explore, to question, and to create in innovative ways.  You will not only uncover the many benefits of a large university, but life-long friendships that emerge from taking part in the many smaller groups that make up our college community.  We encourage you to immerse yourself in this exciting and transformational experience.  We look forward to sharing that journey with you.
